“I really can’t think of a better way to celebrate our wonderfully diverse and vibrant local community than at Carnival of Cultures. It’s a wonderful day of fun and entertainment for the whole family. ” Mayor McKenna said.
“With something for every member of the family, I would really encourage our community to come along to Ashfield Park and join in the fun celebrations and activities on offer for Harmony Day.”
Ashfield Council recommends taking public transport to the event, with free shuttle buses running from Ashfield Civic Centre to the Park. Cyclists can also use the free bike valet service and will go in the draw for a prize.
